Lately, there has been a rise in the number of cases where electrical appliances in Croydon and Bromley have caused accidents both at home and in offices.
In the worst case scenarios, some people have even lost their lives while others were left seriously injured. What this tells you is that there has been a deterioration of safety practices and this is the reason PAT testing needs to be done competently. Here at SAFTH Locksmith Ltd, we can offer complete PAT Testing services for your home and offices. We are a professional and specialised team of residential and commercial locksmiths who can take care of such services.
What is a PAT Test?
A PAT test is a routine inspection of some types of electrical appliance to check they are safe to use. Its purpose is to prevent electrical accidents in the workplace. A full PAT test should include both a visual inspection and a more in-depth check using specialist PAT testing equipment. This test includes earth continuity, lead polarity, and insulation resistance checks.
Some appliances only need a reduced test, called a PAT insulation test. At the end of a PAT test, every appliance should be marked ‘passed’ or ‘failed’. Ideally there should be a record of the results. Not all electrical items need to be PAT tested.
The advantages of PAT Test
According to standards, every business must maintain the standards of electrical equipment in the workplace and make sure any potential for accidents from electrical equipment are removed from the work environment. Although the regulations do not specifically state what means must be taken to achieve this desired result, one of the sure-fire ways to give yourself a peace of mind is through PAT testing.
